2018 All Star Invitational Controversy


Espo Mode

The Gift Exchange

Great Father is dropping crates on the battlefield! Get a gift each time you smash your opponent’s crate… or your own!

How it Works

  • Build a custom deck using cards from your own collection.
  • At the start of your turn, provided there is not a Winter’s Veil Gift on your side of the field, Greatfather Winter will drop one off.
  • Destroying a Gift will give you a Stolen Winter’s Veil Gift.
  • Stolen Winter’s Veil Gift allows you to Discover a card from the class of the player the originating Gift minion came from.
    • You are only able to receive cards which initially cost at least 5 mana.
    • The cost of the card is reduced by 5 mana.
    • You are unable to Discover weapons.
  • If you obtain a Stolen Gift through a card like Mind Vision, it will only pull cards from the neutral set.
  • You have a chance of seeing Hardpacked Snowballs in the Discover mechanic.
